Johanna Reyes

Whether you are new to yoga, or have been practicing for years, Melanin & Yoga Founder Johanna Reyes helps her students stretch, breathe, and find a new sense of comfort in their bodies — thanks to her classes.

The RN and mother of four became a yoga instructor in 2016, and since then has build a loyal following at the many venues where she teaches around her hometown of Richmond, VA — and beyond.

This video, by her son Damian, features her work at the historic Robinson Theater — located in the Church Hill neighborhood of town.

Johanna shares:

We don’t just teach classes,
We empower communities through education and information.

We aren’t just yoga teachers,
We are healthcare professionals that can help guide you toward your wellness goals.

We are here because we care about YOU and are invested in our community.

We aren’t here to teach,
We are here to learn and grow with you.
